“The most important things I learned was organizational skills, becoming familiar with legal documents, terminology, basic legal procedure, law office protocol, and of course teamwork,” said Rudy Gomez, a Client Coordinator for Morgan Drexen. “I spent long nights studying and reading but when it was finished what a relief! I have satisfaction knowing what I learned will enhance my work performance to better assist attorneys and law firm clients.”
